DMCA notice of copyright infringement
Last Updated November 15, 2017 dirtycosplay.com ("DirtyCosplay") respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects all users to do likewise. If you believe your copyright-protected work was posted on dirtycosplay.com without your permission, DirtyCosplay provides a mechanism for you to submit copyright notifications under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). If you receive notice that a work you posted was taken down and you believe such take-down was improper, DirtyCosplay provides a mechanism for you to submit a counter-notice under the DMCA. CAUTION: THERE ARE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES FOR IMPROPERLY POSTING CONTENT FOR WHICH YOU DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS AS WELL AS FOR SUBMITTING AN IMPROPER NOTICE OR COUNTER-NOTICE UNDER THE DMCA. IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHETHER YOU HOLD RIGHTS TO A PARTICULAR WORK OR IF A WORK YOU BELIEVE IS IMPROPERLY POSTED MAY OTHERWISE BE PERMITTED BY LAW, SUCH AS UNDER THE "FAIR USE" DOCTRINE, PLEASE CONSULT AN ATTORNEY OR ANOTHER LEGAL ADVISOR. PROCEDURE FOR DELIVERING DMCA NOTICE:
If you believe that content posted on dirtycosplay.com infringes your copyright and no legal exception exists, you may submit a DMCA copyright infringement notice to DirtyCosplay. Provide the following information via email or mail to our designated Copyright Agent:
Email for incoming DMCA notices: email@example.com
- Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed (a clear description of the materials allegedly being infringed upon);
- Identification of the infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit DirtyCosplay to locate the materials to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, including, if applicable, the URL on the Site where such material may be found;
- Your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and an email address; A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner asserted is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed.
If DirtyCosplay receives a takedown notice in accordance with the foregoing, DirtyCosplay will remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice and attempt to notify any user who uploaded the allegedly infringing material. Any such user will have the opportunity to submit a "counter-notice" as set forth below. DirtyCosplay maintains a repeat infringer policy and terminates the accounts of repeat infringers.
Procedure for delivering DMCA counter-notice:
If any user believes that any material removed pursuant to a DMCA Notice is either not infringing or that such user otherwise has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, the user may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
- A physical or electronic signature of the user;
- Identification of the material that has been removed and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed;
- A statement that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material; and
- The user's name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the user's address is located, or if the user's address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which DirtyCosplay is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, DirtyCosplay will attempt to forward a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party. The original complaining party will have 10 days to file a legal action against the allegedly infringing party and notify DirtyCosplay that such action has been instituted. If DirtyCosplay does not receive any such notification, DirtyCosplay may restore the material, at its discretion.
